Created in 1890, Sequoia National Park is home to the largest trees on earth and the tallest peak in the contiguous United States. At 404,063 acres and over 90% of designated wilderness, Sequoia offers over 800 miles of hiking trails. This park protects the Giant Forest, which has the world's largest tree, General Sherman, as well as four of the next nine tallest. It also has over 240 caves, the tallest mountain in the lower 48, Mount Whitney, and the granite dome Moro Rock.
Did this trail in early March. There was plenty of snow, so bring your snowshoes or skis. Trail is pretty easy to follow, but be warned that the grade and elevation can really get to you on this one. Plan several hours for your trip. Much of the views along the way are slightly obscured by trees, so if you are able really try to get to the pass at "the Hump" for spectacular sweeping views.
The hike to Eagle Lake is only a little over 3.2 miles but tough elevation gain...anglers who love to catch small brook trout here can do so on at least every other cast...I recommend center of the East side of the lake...this lake is beautiful...I'm a local and make the trip at least twice a year...I'f even for a day hike...id visit more often but there are so many wonderful spots in Sequioa National Park...
